Sopa De Verde Rallado - Vegetable Soup With Plantain

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 40 mins

This is an Ecuadorean soup with a good flavor. The ingredients are very typical to Ecuador. I sometimes use half beef stock and half chicken stock, for a lighter flavor. Achiote oil is optional. You can use Achiote Oil. This could be made vegetarian by using a good vegetable stock and omitting the butter. Recipe from Cocinemos Con Kristy, Tomo 2.
